The suspect, who was arrested by the Punjab Police soon after he shot former prime Minister Imran Khan in Gujranwala, has confessed that he shot the PTI chief as he was “misleading” the nation.
“I could see him misleading the nation. I only wanted to target Imran Khan and no one else,” he said in a video statement in police custody.
The suspect also revealed that he had intended to do so ever since the deposed premier left Lahore and started his long march. “No one is behind me and I did this [the attack] on my own,” he added.
